Course participation

We have integration with a SIS. 

In course participation we need across the api function setup some course as Course and another as Term.

Who is the api parameter?

If I understand the question, you would like to use the Canvas API to tell it set the Course Participation to be either Term or Date.

This is the course[restrict_enrollments_to_course_dates] parameter from the update a course endpoint of the Courses API. True is to use the course dates and false is to use the term dates. The wording on the description is incorrect and poorly written, so it can be confusing.

I just did some research into this a week ago in another place, so rather than repeat it all here, I'll just link to that thread in case you need additional information: add participation field to courses API.
